the decades to what the republicans want in the state battle we had in 2011, the budget control act was obama needs the debt ceiling to be increased because we spent so much money and republican said okay, we will raise the debt ceiling so the country doesn't default but only if you agree to a dollar for dollar reduction in spending over the next decade. that $2.5 trillion in spending restraints, not real cuts, spending, less than obama had hoped but in washington that is called a cut. if you want 10 of something and you only got eight of something, you walked away with eight but so that was the $2.5 trillion spending reduction over the next decade. it hasn't happened yet. we have several problems. the trillion dollars that obama obama -- obamacare tax increases in this decade have begun to hit now. oddly enough the democrats in the house and senate decided to put the tax increases, both of them after the 2012 election so everybody voted and now the tax increase has hit. this is not helpful for the economy and they think it's going to be unpleasant. >> host: up next from watertown south dakot

paralyzed, in seoul coming days after north korea blamed south korea and the united states for cyber attacks that temporarily shut down web sites. officials suspect a north korean link. >> president obama is now in israel landing in the country less than three hours ago around 3:15 our time. abc7 news reporter, katie marzullo, has that report. >> president obama is on the way to jerusalem but cnn is reporting the car actually broke down on the way because the driver accidentally put diesel in the tank. when he gets to jerusalem president obama will meet with the israel leaders and the president already made the opening remarks at the airport this tel aviv. this video is new this morning and favors one landing in tel aviv at 3:15, our type, and first came the greetings and photo op and then president obama told the president and prime minister of israel the united states alliance with israel is "forever." he says it is no accident that israel is his first stop on his first foreign trip. >> across this region the winds of change bring both promise and peril the i -- peril. i see this as an opp
and palestinians. who more than anybody don't really agree with obama's stance on the middle east and on a two-state solution. so the next couple of years are incredibly important for the peace process. >> they were very limited policy aspects to the speech. two things that he did say that struck me were one when he called out increased settlement activity. which he said was counterproductive. he didn't call for an end of it but he said it was counterproductive. and the other thing was the end where he said you can't just keep knocking down rockets, you can build as many iron domes as you want, but it's not the solution. there's israeli politics dating back to the age of zionism in the '20s and said that you had to build an iron wall and seduce them into believing that you can't have a two-state existence. >> you can build as many iron domes as you want, in the end it will never result in peace, you have to be engaging. >> he's also making the argument that real security comes through sort of an interweaving of two cultures or an acceptance. there's never going to be a wall high enough. what you rea
importantly, to iran, and resip indicated for by president obama is that the united states and israel stands shoulder to shoulder in terms of the time frame as well as defenses, intelligence, military cooperation so the iranians should understand that there is a common belief between the united states and israel in terms of preventing iran and he got an endorsement of the american plan to prevent iran from becoming a nuclear weapon. >> peter, do you see it the same way, as common ground now? >> well, i think what obama did was buy himself some time. remember, there's a lot of opposition inside the establishment to unilaterally strike anyway. the task will come if the u.s. gets close to a diplomatic deal with iran, would israel support any deal that the united states could manage to get with iran? i think that would be the real test. >> but why does it matter? if we get a deal with iran for them not to go nuclear in terms of weapon, why does it matter if israel opposes that if we accomplish our goal? >> because i think a lot of republicans in congress, frankly, would stand with netanyahu. >>
, but the israelis who had been suspicious of obama's commitment to the jewish state were delighted by the attention. he had us at shalom was the headline in on an analysis in the jerusalem post. frf tel aviv nbc news correspondent martin fletcher. good day to you both. >> nice to be with you. >> dennis, i will begin with you. was this style over substance and style does matter a lot here, right? especially with israel. >> well, i think sometimes style and substance become one and the same. the fact is the president had a major objective in this trip and that objective was to build credibility with the israeli public. by doing that, that would begin to create greater political space for him on issued like iran, on issues like the peace question. if you don't have that connection, if you don't have that credibility, the ability to move on those issues becomes profoundly difficult. so i think what he did was achieve a fundamental objective number one, and number two, there was a substantive achievement. that substantive achievement was a reconciliation between turkey and israel. something the administ
and secretary of state john kerry have been vigorously applying their diplomatic skills. president obama wrapped up his mideast tour. after an unannounced trip for talks with maliki, today kerry makes a trip for talks with hamid karzai. possible negotiations with theal lan, this comes as u.s. troops come close to full withdrawal. nbc's mike taibbi is in kabul with more on the visit. >> reporter: this was a share of unity today. more than just a show, because it's in the interest of both parties the karzai government and the u.s. government. for karzai to not just appear to be a leader but to actually be the leader of a functioning, independent, sovereign government on its way to being a country that can operate independent of the u.s. once combat troops are withdrawn at the end of 2014. now, they smoothed over some thorny issues here. one having to do with the transfer of bagram prison which the u.s. had run with 4,000 detainees to afghan control, complete afghan control with consultation with the u.s. to make sure high-value, high-risk detainees aren't involved in prisoner exchanges or simply r
was for major healthcare reform. presumably she was supporter of obama care although as secretary of state she didn't speak about it is she going to repudiate obama care which may still be beloved by democrats but strongly disliked by a huge segment of the country. that's an issue that could hamstring any democrat running in 2016. so there is a lot out there a lot logical depend on the rules results. if the policy results are not so good. i'm going out on a limb here because she gets the democratic nomination. i don't see anybody that can challenge her. raise an enormous amount of money. she is going to run. you agree she is going to run unless unforeseen things happen. correct? she had some health issues at the end. all of the things being equal, yeah, i think she is is likely to run, i think she has always wanted to be president. i don't think she has ever lost her passion for it who knows? she will be almost 70. right? >> bill: 70 is the new 40. you know that. you are approaching that. >> so glad to hear you say that. >> bill: last week an orange sweater and this week a black sweater. >> th

building on that continues. with the new secretary of state, with the second term of president obama. but i definitely think that it is a valid approach that deserves to be looked at seriously. and i think that is her overriding legacy. she was very much about the big picture. she realized she came in at a time when there was a lot of talk about american decline, when america was facing a financial cries and the world was facing a financial crisis,she was struck by the perception that people had of the united states, this country, she loves, believes in american leadership, and people are asking her, what do you stand for? are you still a superpower? everything seems to be going into meltdown in washington. so she re-asserted the perception of america as a global power. repaired some of the damage to alliances that america had around the world, and tried to help improve the perception around the world of the united states, and then just one last point. i have spoken to several foreign ministers for the back because this is very much a layered book with a lot of different perspectives i have

at least that president obama and the obama administration will get involved and actually help in negotiating a two-state solution. >> we brought you the president's unscripted remarks at the top of the show. how is that being received in the israeli press about the children of the palestinians? >> reporter: many israelis, it depends on who you talk to, really. the israelis, they, too, are very divided when it comes to the palestinian issue. many israelis agreed with president obama and they do feel that there should be a two-state solution. that that would be in the best interest of israel itself to have a nation side by side with the palestinian state, two states that can actually get along. there have been some skeptics as well, people who believe that there may not be a way to negotiate peace because the animosity between the two sides have grown as the decades have gone by. >> nbc's atia abowi, thank you. >>> the prospect of peace is no less he lucive in syria where the civil war there is only intensifying. a devastating bomb blast tore through a mosque in the capital yest

any secretary of state, any administration -- usually at the end, but in this case the beginning -- is the israeli/palestinian conflict. president obama, as you mention in your book, his first call was to, as president, to mahmoud abbas, the head of the palestinian authority. how did that get derailed? it seems like it's no longer -- maybe it's going to again become a front burner issue, but for at least three years of the presidency it kind of went to the back burner. what happened there? >> guest: several things. and it certainly wasn't for the lack of trying on the part of this administration. i think that you can sum it up by saying expectations were raised way too high by the president, by the administration um, there was a belief that perhaps there was a window of opportunity that could be used to advance, um, the talks. but there was a misreading in the united states about what had changed on the ground in israel and in the palestinian territories and where each of the players was, be it netanyahu and abbas. and there is often the sense that if you're the american presiden
